Why has my 353 been referred Robbo? I was no more explicit that your own joke...Artur Boruc equating to Utter B*****ks. I hope your Mods aren't taking on Platini-esque inconsistencies.

Rooney loses control of the ball and then falls over the Arsenal keeper. Rooney does not try to control the ball and beat the keeper. Does it matter whether he has control at the time of the contact?Why are defenders allowed to shield the ball over the goal line by obstructing the forward for yards? If the forward tries to retrieve the ball he gets penalized. This makes an interesting attacking situation into dull defense.

Retrospective punishments are not feasible given the number of games this applies to. In the interests of fairness are all controversial incidents going to get the same treatment?This also undermines the authority and integrity of the referee. Celtic were not going to win that game regardless of the penalty. Their incessant complaints makes them a poor sporting club and bad losers.

Go on hoiday for two weeeks and miss out on the blog-rant of the season....and that's only two weeks old! Still, kept me busy between cups of tea today.For the record, I enjoyed it and would like to point out that I perfectly understood the 'Boruc' joke. It's not just that I am, also, a comic genius, but because I happen to work with a dyed-in-the-wool Tim (Celtic fan, apparently) who, at the beginning of LAST season, declared that Boruc was 'the best keeper in the world'. Not only that, he did it with a straight face. My response to the rest of the office, when they overheard and asked 'who?', was "I think that was Utter B***ocks".See? Genius. I told you.

Rather like good parenting, a strong manager who acts from honesty, reason and compassion would circumvent the need for outside bodies to intervene and punish badly behaving players.

Like Wenger says, if Eduardo's supposed dive is to be punished, then the UEFA have a job on their hands on looking at every possible case of diving. Why now? It was not a game changer.Case in point, McGeady's dive yesterday, although he was sent off, was not punished for 2 games. How is that balanced? If they're going to introduce this type of rule, then it should be dished out evenly regardless of team or player. There is also the persuasive argument that some players do try and avoid being fouled but end up losing their balance. Would this be considered a foul?

Some of you people really need to get laid or smoke a joint or do something to take the edge off. Why you continue to read blogs you don't enjoy eludes me. As for choosing to spend large swaths of time criticising a person you don't know on his writing skills, well I don't think I'll ever understand that.No doubt I'll predictably be receiving one of your 'stinging' and gleefully malevolent ripostes on subject of my intelligence for this post...

I think I've got it straight this time. Chuckle, U140 and Jesus are all the same bloke. I'll make a note of it but it would be easier if none of them showed up. When one of you whining JDR groupies uses three names to pad the number of complaints it certainly helps the cause eh! Perhaps you could have a word?

At 5:13pm on 31 Aug 2009, you wrote:It's Robbo and mate the point surely is that despite the criticism, constructive or otherwise, there has been no change to the style and substance of this blog because what JDR and some others write don't make a ha'porth worth of difference.__________________________________________________________________So essentially what your saying Robbo (sure I'll play along) is that you're going to ignore any negative feedback directed at you. It strikes me as a bit stubborn. And you can't say it’s just JDR on some crazed mission to get you because several other posters are making similar comments.While you and some of your followers might think the blog is entertaining now, you must admit at some point it will become overly repetitive and completely stale. Personally I think that point has already passed. Nonetheless the question still remains how are you going to address this issue? Do you honestly believe come the start of 2010 season we'll be debating the merits of Robbo’s premiership predictions? Where Robbo is that same stereotypical working class northerner who resides in the Blue Bell. I find that very fanciful.

Do you get all 700 of Robbo's annual blogs over there? Give you somat to do indoors while it's raining! He just did one entitled "Diving Me Crazy".

What does get incredibly tiresome is having to read through your chummy posts, you weak sarcasm and your defense of your God, Robbo. I don't believe in God.

Scroll past it.----If you are considering replying with some sarcastic post, please stop for a second. This isn't a battle I'm having with you, I would simply ask you to keep your drivel to yourself.

"I have won and you are not allowed to reply". You may notice Andre that I NEVER complain about any of the abuse directed at me here. Do you know why? Because I happen to think it is funny to see people like you make fools of themselves.-----Whatever issues I have with Niall's blog, your obsessive and fanatical posts are incredibly irritating.

There isnt actually a wealth of comedy sports blogs on the BBC so in that regard the choice is limited.

Also you will notice this blog is situated in the fun and games section.

As you've given us no indication of the direction you'd like me blog to take - save for 'make it better' which is a mite subjective, son - I doubt I'll be able to satisfy your non-specific needs and therefore it seems senseless to keep logging on in some weird masochistic act of hope.

Ive noticed that while there are some who clearly disagree with me and dont care for my opinion, there are also many that do see to share my sentiments. I would also question how much people like GazUtd, TrottersUSA etc genuinly care for your blog as it would seem to me they simply just prefer having a place to trade jokes with each other as opposed to actually reading your blog and enjoying it. As I said before thats fine by me. Rather than seek to improve your blogs comedy (or even vary it slightly) you seem to be more interested in trading insults with people in the guise of the fictional "Robbo" - in this regard you lose credibility. I dont want to judge you - you may be simply unmotivated from writing endless "Robbo" blogs or you may just be untalented but at least try to disprove the latter by producing something better than this shopworn fodder.

You post on this blog EVERY single day, and always with the same recycled rubbish. You seem to feel you have some sort of premium relationship with other posters on here, yet you do not even know anything about their lives. It smacks of desperationI find it genuinely bewildering that you do not see the obvious. You post ALL the time, your comments do not get feedback other than from 3 or 4 other hardcore losers on here, and yet you continue to plague this blog with utter tripe. Does it not make you wonder why YOU are the highest poster on this blog? Do you think that is what normal people do? I can assure you, it is not no matter what those internet chatrooms say. Finally, Niall seems to be sitting up and paying attention that some of us would like him to change this tired, worn out attempt at humour into something with a little more substance.

There have been quite a few different posters commenting on this blogs poorness.I don’t think its good enough to say that because the blog entertains a handful of devout regulars that the critics should be ignored. I’d say any old mickey mouse blog would still be able to find a few that it entertains. The difference here is this is quite a prominent blog on bbc which is probably one of the most popular websites out there. The bar is higher and when something falls below that bar, in this case miles below, it’s status should be reviewed.Maybe Niall could setup Robbo somewhere else and bring his 5 or 6 worshippers with him and then make a fresh attempt at a light hearted blog which justifies the tax payers funding.

This is fine by me.My problem is, and Im surprised this isnt crystal clear by now - Robbo's blog. To summarize:1. First off their is a genuine need to establish if a blog of this nature is belongs on the site - especially under a "football" blog tab.2. In the event its established that a blog like this can be justified (funded by license payers fees) - surely there must be some kind of quality control in place and some genuine standards to be met. Why are we subjected to the same overused, cliche mad fictional northerner using the same jaded outlook on sport from a stereotyped working class viewpoint?3. The blog is obviously designed to amuse - it doesnt. It also manges to fail to acheive any real point - very little style or substance etc4. The repition on the blog is horrific, the humour is mundane.5. I understand "Robbo" is intended to be fictional (despite what some people on this blog believe and notwithsttanding the fact he replies "in character) - but such is poorness of quality, repetitive nature and lack of humour it is next to impossible to be absorbed into "Robbo's fictional world of the Blue Bell". Instead I just imagine Niall sitting at his laptop churning out his next monstrosity as quick as possible with almost no effort.These are my main grievances. And the danger is if standards are allowed to slip (or remain painfully low) then license fees will continue to be wasted and more and more "Robbo" like articles will appear at the expense of worthwhile articles. As mentioned before, Im not entirely writing off Niall as a "comedic journalist" or whatever title he grants himself in the bbc but I would challenge him to extend the scope of his writings and produce some varied work rather than continually pushing out hastily written and low grade humour.

Why would I do that? I was hoping to make the point that I had no agenda as a supporter of Celtic/Aresenal/Man U/Liverpool.....Presumably the BBC have decided PTFC are far too humble for this debate. Any comments Robbo?Oh, and for the benefit of the sexist half-wits who tried to explain me repeating myself, I'm male. The clue is in the first 4 letters of my user name. If you still don't understand because of the spelling, find a Scotsman and ask them to explain.

Where to start?Well I just seen (or is it saw) Inglorious B******DS. It's rubbish. More Tarantino self indulgent claptrap. But I suppose that's a bit off topic.Trotter, sorry I missed your PMS notification, I promise I don't ignore your posts!Anyway, on to JDR. Anyone else notice the "3 times a week" / "bi-weekly" mistake? I thought it was funny anyway.Now before someone massages my ego I better get to the case in point. Joe, please Joe, pretty please Joe, I am begging you, please tell me exactly what your problem is? It can't just be the fact this blog exists, it has gone well beyond that. Clearly you feel Robbo has harmed you in a previous life or something.And as for us "comedy geniuses" (or should that be genii) all I can say is that what is the problem with a couple of people wanting to have a bit of craic now and again? Seriously?It's gone beyond making a joke out of you Joe, you manage that quite well yourself, at this stage I am seriously worried for your mental health.

Badly stale. I am aware you use them as the engine power for what is supposed to be a tongue up your own rear but dear God, 3 times a week? In fairness, if you were remotely right it might just about be allowable but your posts are desperately poor. I mean no one even understands your repetitiveness (are they a joke?). The BBC clearly feels the need to have some sort of "joker" posting but seem to have forgotten that you’re not relevant in the first place. And why the need for the same stereotyped views of a boring character ad nauseum? Surely you can provide a bit more variety than Niall?As for you being some "paid" guy to "wind up the regulars" - hardly. I’m aware that there is a core of 3/4 guys that seem to fancy themselves as comedic geniuses themselves and use this blog space to try and showcase their talents - perhaps hoping to have their own blogs someday, I hope so. I’m more than confident they could produce quite good blogs but its worth noting that they don’t really seem to engage in much discussion on the blogs’ material much like yourself but so what, that’s half the fun? I like to polish pictures of myself admittedly (?). You will defend your bi-weekly (3 times a week is not bi-weekly by the way) nonsense but probably more out of fear that you won’t have a forum to have your daily rant sessions if someone in the BBC sees sense and removes your posts.Finally JDR, I would again encourage you to broaden your horizons and at least attempt a constructive post without the shop-worn "JDR" brand of boring self righteous drivel or just go elsewhere. I’m not asking for anything too drastic I feel here, one step at a time.

Anybody that misses out all the apostrophes in a post should be ;1. Sent to apostrophe school and be banned from posting for a month.2. Forced to type their next post with all 18 layers of cling film removed from their keyboard.3. Forced to do something else with Noel Edmonds and a muppet of Robbo's choosing.

Badly stale. I am aware you use him as the engine power what is supposed to be a tongue in cheek blog but dear God, 3 times a week?

Im more than confident they could produce an equally terrible blog but its worth noting that they dont really seem to engage in much discussion on the blogs material as opposed to polishing each others egos with low grade humour.
